Black king is far away so the position calls for 1.Kf3...what to do for black? 1...Kd6, 2.g4. If 2...fxg4 white gets opposition easily. 3.Kxg4 Ke7, 4.Kg5 (not 4.Kf5 Kf7!)
If 2...Ke6, then white gets a protected passer with 3.g5 Kd5, 4.Kg3 (not 4.Ke3 giving black a draw) 4...Ke6, 5.Kh4 Kf7, 6.Kh5 Kg7, 7.g6 black can not save the f5 pawn and stop white's g-pawn simultaneously.
